About this title

Synopsis:

Though everyone in the village of Tres Montes thinks Sonia Ocampo is blessed, she knows she is nothing but a fraud. She’s spent her life listening to the hopes and wishes of her neighbors and family, but when a classmate dies despite her prayers, she is forced to realize that she has no special powers—no way to prevent bad things from happening.

Rather than disenchant her friends and embarrass her family, she leaves home to work in the house of a wealthy woman in the city. There she is finally what she wants to be—just a girl like any other. But when misfortune falls upon her family, she must confront the truth, no matter how difficult.

With a hint of magical realism and romance, Meg Medina weaves a poignant tale about a girl who dares to face life’s harsh truths and find power within herself.

Meg Medina is the author of The Girl Who Could Silence the Wind and the picture book Tia Isa Wants a Car, illustrated by Claudio Muņoz, which won the Ezra Jack Keats New Writer Award. The daughter of Cuban immigrants, she grew up in Queens, Mew York, and now lives in Richmond, Virginia.
